From everything I've seen here, we'd be doing better than the average if we simply raised our kids to be "normal," and not worry so much about "extraordinary."

Is the ALMANAC positive there wasn't a typo in the title of the book?
Shouldn't the last part read "Mixed-up, Muddled-up, Shook-up PENINSULA?"

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
